January 30: Open Score: Art and Technology 2016
The New Museum and Rhizome will copresent Open Score: Art and Technology 2016, the inaugural edition of an annual conference that will explore some of the most pressing questions the art world faces in light of how technology is transforming culture.
Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, announces the inauguration of Open Score, an annual art and technology conference copresented by the New Museum and Rhizome. Exploring the state of art and technology today, the conference will convene luminary artists, curators, researchers, and writers to discuss how technology is transforming culture. The first edition, Open Score: Art and Technology 2016, will take place in the New Museum Theater on January 30, 2016, from 2 to 6pm and is supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
The inaugural edition of Open Score will consider how artists are responding to new conditions of surveillance and hypervisibility; how social media's mass creativity interfaces with branding and identity for individual artists; how the quality and texture of art criticism is evolving in a digital age; and what the future of internet art might be in light of a broader assimilation of digital technologies.
Open Score is organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator and Associate Director, Technology Initiatives, the New Museum, and Michael Connor, Artistic Director of Rhizome, with Sara O'Keeffe, Assistant Curator, the New Museum.
